WELSH Water has made an emergency road closure in Monmouthshire to repair a burst water main.

Morrison Water Services, working on behalf of Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, have closed the B4233 from Abergavenny and Trothy Bridge in Llanvapley.

The closure runs for around six kilometres or four miles.

It is anticipated the closure will be in place up to Friday, February 16.

A signed diversion is in place following the A40 towards Raglan.

Authorities closed the A40 in Monmouthshire and Herefordshire last week due to a landslide on the road.
